A Practical Approach to the Diagnosis of Unexplained LVH: Insights into Infiltrative Cardiomyopathies
This program supports cardiologists in going through a differential diagnosis of patients with left ventricular hypertrophy. Using a case study to illustrate a patient journey, the program will review recommended cardiac imaging and how to use the imaging results to establish a diagnosis.
Examples of ECG and ECHO findings, in addition to disease-specific testing, will be used to increase cardiologists’ confidence in analyzing test results and moving patients towards a diagnosis.
This program has received an educational grant or in-kind support from Sanofi Genzyme.
This activity is an Accredited Self-Assessment Program (Section 3) as defined by the Maintenance of Certification Program of The Royal College of Physicians & Surgeons of Canada.

Upon completion of this continuing education program, participants will be better able to:
- Develop a diagnostic approach to patients who present with unexplained LVH
- Discuss the key features of cardiac imaging tests that can help differentiate between cardiac pathologies
- Implement the use of disease-specific testing in patients with unexplained LVH
